Trump takes more swipes at Canada after arrival in Singapore

George said Trump's tariffs are going to"hurt both sides" especially considering Canada is the United States'"biggest customer

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's speech at the G7 summit, in which he rebuked President Trump and vowed to protect Canadian interests, has drawn comparisons to an iconic movie moment near and dear to the hearts of many a Hugh Grant fan.

Trump's latest twitter tirade came after he arrived in Singapore for his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

He said Mr Trudeau was "very dishonest and weak" and "acts hurt when called out".

She also said that during the summit the leaders discussed President Trump's proposal for complete free trade among G7 member states, but said the issue was "fair trade".

Trump says he watched that news conference on his way to Singapore, and was upset because he thought he and Trudeau had had a positive meeting in Charlevoix.

"When I got on to the plane, I think that Justin probably didn't know that Air Force One has about 20 televisions", Trump said. And I say, push him around?

Trump adviser Peter Navarro, meanwhile, said Tuesday he made a mistake when he said "there's a special place in hell" for Trudeau. "And I left the meeting, and I'll be honest, we're being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries very seriously".

Trump has consistently railed against what he claims are unfair trade practices by some of America's biggest trade partners, including Canada.

The motion calls on the House to recognize the importance of Canada's "long-standing, mutually beneficial trading relationship" with the USA, "strongly oppose" the "illegitimate tariffs" imposed on steel and aluminum, stand "in solidarity" with the Trudeau government's decision to impose retaliatory tariffs and remain united in support of the supply management system of regulating Canada's dairy and poultry industry.

"It was very friendly", Trump said.

"I have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing, but it is something that we absolutely will do, because Canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around", Trudeau said. "And it won't even be tough".

Former U.S. Ambassador Bruce Heyman, who served under former U.S. President Barack Obama, has also backed Trudeau. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore.

The summit was seen as an opportunity to overcome disagreements on new tariffs imposed by the United States on imports.

On Monday, MPs in the House of Commons approved a motion denouncing Trump's name-calling tirade and endorsing Trudeau's decision to stand his ground against USA tariffs and tweeted presidential threats.

A boxing enthusiast who dons his gloves to work off the stress of the job in his rare free time, the Canadian prime minister will have to carefully measure his punches against the U.S. leader, who publicly accused him of weakness and dishonesty after the meeting of the G7 nations in Quebec at the weekend.

"So at this summit, we expressed deep disappointment at the unjustified decision of the United States to apply tariffs to steel and aluminium imports".

And in Ottawa on Monday, International Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne urged lawmakers to speed ratification of the Trans-Pacific Partnership that might offset losses in U.S. trade by binding Canada closer to Asia, Australia and Latin America.
